Seduction at FIT Museum

18 December 2008 | , ,

On the 9th December the Museum at FIT, in New York, opened an exhibition dedicated to Seduction in Fashion. I have followed the exhibitions at the museum for a while now and earlier this year, when I realised they were hosting a show on Christian Louboutin and desire, the distance separating me from those glorious objects almost became too much. With this new show, though, enough would have been enough and I would have had to find a way of going to New York City, despite the fact that I have another visit planned for the East coast later on in the year. I say would have, because I am now definitely going to see Seduction. Moreover, I have been invited to speak about it in conversation with the curator, Colleen Hill. An honour, a delight. This will take place on the 18th February 2009. If you happen to be around, and want to hear something around perversion, the pleasure of dressing up and scopophilia, do come along.

  1. The John Rrawlings photograph in Vogue magizne oct15,1947, and included

    in the FIT Museum Facebook site and in a book of his work,is in fact a

    model named ANNA-LEE DANIELS ,not Carmen Dell’Orefice!!! I assure you

    of this fact,as I am Carmen and ANNA-LEE was my friend at the time.She

    married an artist early in her life and retired from modeling.

  2. Hi Laura,
    Annalee Danels not Daniels is correct. She is alive and well in Southport, CT.
    She married the sculptor Herzl Emanuel. They moved to Rome in the early 1960s where she continued to model for some years.
